A Global Outlook

'One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.'

- Malala Yousafzai

Being a 'good citizen' has been a focus at Ivanhoe Grammar School since our inception 102 years ago. Our Founding Principal, The Reverend Sydney Buckley described the role of education in developing people of character, and the School is built on his model of learning through service and leadership. It continues to define Ivanhoe Grammar School's ethos.

Over the last 20 years, service and leadership activities have evolved beyond the local community to international opportunities that encourage students to be good global citizens. Supporting them to develop a global outlook has seen the School adopt many initiatives, particularly joining the Round Square International Network and more recently, launching our Global Citizenship Centre.
